Parameters

true to specify the direction of the control to select; otherwise, false.

forward
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to move forward in the tab order; false to move backward in the tab order.

Remarks

The directed and forward parameters are used by container-style controls. When the directed parameter is set to true, the forward parameter is evaluated to determine which control to select. When forward is set to true, the next control in the tab order is selected; when false, the previous control in the tab order is selected.

The Select method activates the control if the control's Selectable style bit is set to true in ControlStyles, it is contained in another control, and all its parent controls are both visible and enabled.

The Windows Forms controls in the following list are not selectable. Controls derived from controls in the list will also not be selectable.
